Today I’m excited to bring you a MyMusicIsBetterThanYours.com first. Well, three firsts, actually. I’ve just been sent DJ Erika K‘s exclusive guest mix, making it 1.) our first female submission 2.) our first San Francisco submission and 3.) the first Trance guest mix we’ve featured. I’ve got to say, after listening to Erika K’s hour-long journey through high-tempo Trance selections, I honestly don’t know of any local DJs back home in Boston doing it quite like this. I first learned of Erika K when she liked one of our pictures on Instagram (FOLLOW US HERE). Digging a little deeper I saw Erika was a local Bay Area DJ who specialized in Trance. I thought Erika had the capability to put together a great mix for us and boy was I right. I also love how she manages to set herself apart in a very saturated dance music world.
Erika K’s bio reads as follows:
Born and raised in Northern California, Erika K has been DJing since 2009. With her love and motivation to the Trance scene, Erika K is consistently working on studio work and her mixes; focusing on her Internet podcast “Trance Conduct.” Erika K made her debut in the San Francisco area including clubs such as Manor West, The Parlor, Region, Temple, Mezzanine, Pure Lounge and Slide; and has made her way down to San Diego to perform at the W Hotel. She has also played alongside trance favorites such as Max Graham and Kristina Sky. If you haven’t had an opportunity to listen to Erika K’s sets, make sure you look for them online. Her love and intense dedication to the genre will bring about many great things in the upcoming years.
Not being too into Trance, I was really happy to discover some new music off the path I usually go down. I didn’t recognize most of the artists in the mix and as someone who is musically open-minded, this was a perfect way for me to try something new. I highly encourage you to check out Erika K’s guest mix and to show her some love if you like what you hear!
